UD512 USB to DMX Interface


Get DMX straight out of your laptop

The Vista App software package gives you all the functions of the full-size Vista lighting console on your personal computer. Until now though, if you wanted to connect your PC to your fixtures, you needed two things: an expensive Ethernet-to-DMX adaptor and some networking know-how to set it up.

Now you can generate DMX* straight from your PC‘s USB port quickly and simply with the Jands UD512 USB-DMX adaptor. Best of all, you can do it without burning a hole in your pocket.


The UD512 is a simple 1.5m cable connector that gives you 512 DMX channels*. The UD512 is powered from the USB port and has two LED indicators showing if the output is selected and DMX activity. Compact and portable, the UD512 is quite simply the most cost-effective and convenient way to get DMX out of your PC.
* Actual DMX output channels determined by dongle. Software pack, including dongle, must be purchased separately.
